SOLAR-500: Solar Power Meter
  • Enter your model number above to make sure this fits.
  • Evaluates energy output, efficiency, and placement of solar panels, helps determine proper inverter size in solar power systems, and identifies malfunctioning solar cells
  • Measures maximum power (Pmax), maximum voltage at maximum power (Vmaxp), and maximum current at maximum power (Imaxp) to determine actual power output of a solar panel in normal operating conditions
  • Choice of auto scan, for an overview of the power characteristics of a solar panel, or manual scan, for focusing on a particular operating range or single test point for measurements
  • Test results can be stored in the meter's memory for future reference
  • Alarm sounds when power measurements drop below a user-adjustable preset threshold

Product Description

Style:SOLAR-500: Solar Power Meter

The Amprobe solar power analyzer evaluates the energy output, efficiency, and placement of solar panels, helps determine the proper inverter size in solar power systems, and identifies malfunctioning cells on solar panels. It measures maximum power (Pmax), maximum voltage at maximum power (Vmaxp), maximum current at maximum power (Imaxp), voltage at open circuit, voltage present in system, current at short circuit, and percent efficiency to determine the actual power output of a solar panel in normal operating conditions. The operator can choose between an auto scan mode, for an overview of the power characteristics of a solar panel, and a manual scan mode, for focusing on a particular operating range or single test point for measurements.

SOLAR-600 Solar Power Analyzer

Bold and precise features for installing and maintaining solar panels

The Amprobe Solar-600 is the professional solar meter for testing, maintenance, troubleshooting and efficiency of solar panels for homes or in commercial settings. The analyzer is used for the installation of solar panels to determine the proper inverter size, optimum power output position of panels and identifies broken or worn-out cells. The Solar-600 can identify broken or inefficient cells, which are sometimes connected to multiple solar panels, and will affect the power output of all cells that are connected with the broken or inefficient cell.

This full function Solar Power Analyzer offers bold and precise features. The meter's data logging function automatically records measurements at preset intervals for viewing power characteristics over a period of time, and it can store up to 99 records. A zero calibration feature calibrates the voltage and current before use to improve the accuracy of measurements. An alarm sounds when power measurements drop below a user-adjustable preset threshold – an innovation to make monitoring equipment easier. A built-in calendar and clock track the timing of recorded events, such as power measurements. The meter's liquid crystal display (LCD) shows readings both in digits and as a curve on a graph.

It measures maximum power (Pmax), maximum voltage at maximum power (Vmaxp), maximum current at maximum power (Imaxp), voltage at open circuit, voltage present in system, current at short circuit, and percent efficiency to determine the actual power output of a solar panel in normal operating conditions. The operator can choose between an auto scan mode, for an overview of the power characteristics of a solar panel, and a manual scan mode, for focusing on a particular operating range or single test point for measurements.

The meter comes with a set of test leads and two Kelvin clips for secure, hands-free connection to a conductor. The meter is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery pack (included) and comes with a built-in battery charger with an external power adaptor. The meter's low-battery indicator signals when the batteries need to be charged. The meter has a USB port and comes with a data cable for connecting the meter to a computer. It also comes with software that provides a graphical user interface for transferring data from the meter to a computer running the Windows Vista, XP, or 2000 operating system.

A tilt stand on the back of the meter allows it to be propped on a surface for hands-free operation. The unit comes with a nylon carrying case with shoulder strap to help protect against bumps and abrasions during transport and storage.
